Sign dedication on Nov. 6
October 28, 2021
Two permanent signs erected in Cathlamet in honor of the Chinook tribes who once occupied this area will be dedicated Nov. 6, 12 noon, at the Elochoman Slough Marina. They tell the stories of Queen Sally, canoe building and greeting the Lewis and Clark expedition. The signs were funded by a grant from the Lewis and Clark Trail Stewardship Endowment, the efforts of town councilman David Olson and with cooperation from Tony Johnson, chair of the Chinook Indian Nation. Representatives from regional political leadership, Chinook tribal ancestors and local citizens will be in attendance. This is a free event open to the public. Courtesy photo.
